Since 1999, Indy BackPack Attack has formed strategic community collaborations with Central Indiana organizations and businesses and has made it our mission to collect school supplies to provide children the tools they need to succeed in school. It’s reported that 80% percent of the families in the Indianapolis Public Schools district (IPS) need help with basic school supplies. With the help of local organizations and businesses, Indy BackPack Attack has collected more than 3.5 million school supplies since 1999!
“We are thrilled to partner with the Colts for this gameday collection event on October 9th,” said Mandy Emery, Treasurer, Indy BackPack Attack. “This collection will bring
awareness that children need school supplies all year long and not just the beginning of the school year. School supplies wear out, get lost, borrowed, stolen and broken throughout the year. Having the right tools in class is essential to succeeding in education. This gameday collection will allow Indy BackPack Attack to help replenish the children’s needs after their winter break when teachers report their supplies are depleted. We can’t thank the Colts enough for this wonderful opportunity.”
